Award-winning building for sale in market town of Kendal

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has been instructed to sell the Native Bar and Grill situated in the market town of Kendal, just eight miles from Windermere in the Lake District.

The Grade II listed building which houses a restaurant and three flats has been extensively restored and renovated, resulting in winning the LABC North West Regional Building Excellence Award for Redevelopment in 2013.

With an elegant and contemporary interior, the restaurant provides seating for 55 diners in a luxurious setting. Above the restaurant, there is currently a three bedroom owner’s accommodation with an additional two letting apartments on the second floor. All of the accommodation has been recently refurbished to an extremely high standard.

Kendal is often seen as the Southern gateway to the Lake District and noted as a ‘North Western Gem’. The town is home to a multitude of historic buildings, bridges and castles. With tens of thousands of tourists visiting each year, Native Bar and Grill is ideally placed in a high profile trading position to capitalise on the local and tourist trade.

Tom O’Malley, Business Agent in Christie & Co’s Manchester office, comments, “This property consists of an exceptional high quality, ground floor restaurant, where no expense has been spared on the fittings. The restaurant has an extremely loyal following yet there is still fantastic growth potential for the new owner and the whole property offers a buyer a range of opportunities which makes this all the more appealing. The current owners are selling due to retirement and we expect to see interest from local and national operators alike looking to capitalise on the strong location and ability to start trading immediately.”

Christie & Co is seeking an asking price of £895,000 for the freehold of the property.
